Like the ghost story that used to scare the bejesus out of me as a child. It was about a china doll that was actually a vampire and sucked her young owner's blood one night. The end was truly horrific--the girl's parents never figured out exactly how the girl died, but only found the china doll with a smear of blood across its face.
Or the Poltergeist movies. Wow. One night when I was much-too-young, a babysitter let me watch one (I still don't know which--the one with the man that looks like the Quaker Oats box?). I couldn't sleep in a room with a mirror in it for...well, come to think of it, it still gives me the heebs.
For this week's poll:
What are some of your favorite scary stories and movies? Why do you think it is that they give you the creeps?
Comment and discuss.
